Apple is planning to release three new smartphones this year

Apple's Short Interest Rises 7 Million Shares, but Does It Matter?

It, too, will use OLED technology and could include a resolution of 2688 x 1242 (at least that's what Apple's now testing). But it would be the phone you're expecting after the iPhone X. Using past Apple naming conventions, let's call this one the iPhone Xs.

Apple is expected to discontinue the iPhone X later this year when the company introduces their 2018 iPhone line rather than following the tradition of continuing to sell older devices for a reduced price. The display will reportedly be the same OLED technology used on the current iPhone X.

KGI also said 2018 will be the end for Touch ID and that all iPhone models will embrace Face ID.

The moves come at an interesting time for Apple. Regardless, this fall we'll likely see three iPhones that all feature the edge-to-edge design that made the iPhone X so striking when it debuted.

Bloomberg says Apple is considering a dual-SIM card feature for the 6.5-inch model, but could also wait for E-SIM technology, as now used in iPad cellular models and Apple Watch LTE models, which do not require a physical SIM card.

The iPhone X XL's pixel density would supposedly be around 500 pixels per inch (PPI).

Apple's Short Interest Rises 7 Million Shares, but Does It Matter?

Perhaps more interesting is Apple's decision to apparently go for the economy market.

Last September's launch also saw the introduction of three new models: the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 and new flagship iPhone X.

The cheaper version of the iPhone X will also feature an edge-to-edge screen and a Face ID scanner.

The smaller iPhone is said to also inherit many features of the iPhone X as well. With their thick bezels and lack of edge-to-edge screens, they seem dated next to the iPhone X and the latest Samsung devices.

To keep costs down, the cheaper phone will use LCD screen technology similar to the type employed in the iPhone 8. They will feature upgraded augmented reality (AR) capabilities, deeper Siri integration, digital health monitoring, and of course, Animojis.

Like certain iPads, Apple is also apparently considering a two-SIM option for the Plus "in at least some regions", nearly certainly utilizing an embedded chip called an eSIM alongside a removable nano-SIM as a compromise to placate eSIM-resistant cellular carriers.
